RE: Anime Films releases live-action JU JUTSU KAISEN with Asian American cast
RE: Anime Films presented its live adaptation of “Jujutsu Kaisen”. Julie Zhan (HBO Visionaries, Zoetic) and Hana Wu (Five-Cent Life) portray the iconic characters from the anime in the short film.
The project adapts one of the most popular fight scenes from the series between Maki Zenin (Hana Wu) and Kasumi Miwa (Julie Zhan). “This scene was chosen because we wanted to meet the challenge of adapting the choreography and combat atmosphere of the original animation while remaining true to the intent of the original,” said director Nik Shaw, founder of RE: Anime Films.
“Hollywood is adapting more anime content, but none of it seems to stay true to the source. My main focus is to use our team’s love, expertise, and in-depth anime knowledge to create content that stays true to the visions and stories of the original creators. “
